So you've just read about us in the Sunday paper?

Welcome. You're likely wondering: "How in the world could anybody be against wind power??"
Before you conclude that we are a bunch of whiners who don't want sleep-depriving 40-story towers in our back yards (that's generally true), please poke around this site. Lest you think we are a clique of conspiracy theorists (some of us do smell a pretty big rat but rats don't stick around forever the way abandoned wind turbines will) please read the sensible information found here. Click on "About Us" and see how we make the case that Maine has no use for the super-expensive, woefully unreliable, environmentally damaging fad known as wind power. Please find that wind power has nothing to do with getting us off oil, since we don't use oil (or coal) to generate electricity - and we have huge excess generation already. Please click around and find that we care about Maine's quality of place, and we don't want to sell off and blow up our mountaintops for a generating method which will be obsolete and useless (but forever damaging) in a decade. Please see that we are not a rabble of unsophisticated anarchists, but people who have done plenty of homework, homework that leads one to the conclusion that 2700 mw of wind production could bankrupt Maine financially and environmentally. Please see that we are simply trying to halt the myth that wind power has redeeming value for anyone except the developers who scoop up the incentives and subsidies, despite its ability to appear warm and fuzzy. The price we pay at the meter and in lost environment is just too high for what we get in return: an undependable, expensive, duplicative product that does not do what it says it will. Wind power is dangerous medicine being prescribed to a healthy patient. Welcome, and join. Help us turn Maine off this suicidal path.

That sounds like a tune by Leslie Gore's sister - Coburn Gore, decrying the planned invasion of the Chain of Ponds.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
